Yan Gomes 'should be ready' to return Friday
by Michael Hurcomb |

Indians manager Terry Francona indicated Tuesday that catcher Yan Gomes (concussion) is on track to come off the 7-day disabled list Friday, which is the first day he is eligible to return.

Gomes was able to go through sprint drills prior to Tuesday's game against the White Sox, according to The Plain Dealer.

"Yan is having a really good day," Francona said Tuesday. "His eyes look a lot clearer. I don't want to be unfair to him, but I'd surprised if he's not raring to go by Friday and Friday is his day (to be activated). Unless he has a setback, he should be ready Friday."

Andrew McCutchen fine for Wednesday clash
by Marty Gitlin |

A rib ailment that knocked Pirates slugger Andrew McCutchen out of the Tuesday night game does not have him sidelined for the Wednesday afternoon game against visiting St. Louis. He is in the lineup.

McCutchen sustained the injury crashing into the wall in the third inning, though he remained in the game for a while. His hitless performance ended a strong stretch in which he slugged seven hits, including three home runs, in the previous four games.

Kirk Gibson: Patrick Corbin won't be back by 2015 opener
by Marty Gitlin |

Diamondbacks southpaw Patrick Corbin could remain out until next June after undergoing Tommy John surgery on March 25, per the Arizona Republic.

"He'd probably punch me if he heard me saying that, but you're really going to take your time and make sure he's ready to go," Kirk Gibson said. "You're not going to expect him to come back and throw 220 innings. You kind of manage his rehab through innings and put him in position to finish strong. ... We're going to make sure we err on the side of very cautious."

Corbin emerged as a standout in 2013 with a 14-8 record, 3.41 ERA and 178 strikeouts in 208 1/3 innings.

Daniel Hudson nearing return from rehab stint
by Marty Gitlin |

Right-hander Daniel Hudson has all but completed his rehab assignment and is slated to rejoin the Diamondbacks soon after his Friday outing for Triple-A Reno.

It remains to be seen if Hudson maintains his status as a starter, a role in which he showed promise before struggling mightily in 2012 and losing two seasons to multiple elbow surgeries.

Archie Bradley might not make major league debut this season
by Marty Gitlin |

Diamondbacks stud pitching prospect Archie Bradley might not see a major league mound in 2014. Those hoping he'd be called up in September could wind up being disappointed, per the Arizona Republic.

Bradley will pitch in the Arizona Fall League, which might preclude him from working with the Diamondbacks down the stretch. Kirk Gibson said the decision will be up to general manager Kevin Towers.

The right-hander needs the work. An elbow injury has limited him to just 82 2/3 innings this season, just over half the number he racked up in 2013.

Report: Reds place two starters on revocable waivers
by Marty Gitlin |

The Reds have placed starters Mat Latos and Mike Leake on revocable waivers, per MLB Network Insider Ken Rosenthal, who is further reporting that both should be claimed, but neither is likely to be traded.

The Reds have fallen virtually out contention for a playoff spot with a 2-8 slide, which could have led to the decision to test the interest in Latos and Leake.
